Flight attendant was not too pleasant. Especially in light of virus concerns. It is very comforting when the attendants smile and are welcoming.

How to get through airport security fast when traveling to Des Moines

If you like the idea of spending more time at the airport bars and restaurants and less time moving through security on your way to Des Moines, just follow these practical tips:

  • Have your travel ID and boarding pass easily accessible. They'll be the first things you'll be instructed to produce by airport security personnel.
  • Remove your jewellery, belt and shoes before arriving at the airport security checkpoint. Items like these are not allowed in the body scanner.
  • Laptops need to be taken out of their carry bags and placed in a tub before X-raying.
  • Flying with your favorite perfume or cologne? As long as it's no greater than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and it's stored in a clear zip-lock bag, you can keep it in your hand luggage.
  • Steel-cap boots and other cumbersome shoes are typically X-rayed by security personnel. We suggest wearing simple sneakers instead.
  • The list of non-permissible items is forever changing. Check with your carrier's website to learn about what is not allowed on board their aircraft.
